Avi and his crew did an excellent job in a timely fashion. They were the first bid provided to us, and after looking at two other plumbers on Angie's List that had well over 100 ratings who also mentioned they did re-pipe jobs, Asher Plumbing was the best. Asher Plumbing's quote was $1000 lower than the third bid, which included a 10% Angie's List discount, and $1400 lower than the second bid, which also included a 10% Angie's List discount, and did *not* include patching! Avi not only provided us with his quote in the bid, but also provided a copy of his company's liability insurance, workman's comp insurance, and a list of recently satisfied customers that I could call. The other plumbers used subcontractors, and couldn't guarantee or even say if those subs had workman's comp. Avi has his own crew, and he is a copper re-pipe specialist - that's his main thing. Nobody else I could find on Angie's List could make this claim, and Avi said his crew is often used by other plumbers for their re-pipe jobs. The small job plumber I had out at my house first who helped me determine the problem told me to make sure that whoever was doing the work had workman's comp insurance and that they were a re-pipe specialist, if I wanted the best job done. Due to my own time constraints at work, the re-pipe work was scheduled for 14 days from when we got the quote. In the meantime, we only turned on the house water when we needed, since we left the hot water off for all but necessities, and since the kitchen faucet would leak when we left only the cold on. About a week before the work was scheduled, we didn't have hot any more, either, when the valve going to the hot water heater started leaking as well. The work was due to start at 8AM on June 30th, and Avi and his crew were at the house about 10 minutes early. They got right to work with I believe a 6-man crew in total. They used my garage as a staging area for most of the equipment. Cloth was laid down on the floor everywhere the crew needed to walk, and plastic coverings were put over furniture in both bedrooms where work needed to be done to get to the pipes in the wall the opposite side of the bathrooms. We had cleared out all items on top of and underneath and around all sinks and toilets, and moved furniture as far away from walls that needed to be worked on, before the crew arrived. They only had to move some stuff in the garage where I did not anticipate them going, and also had to empty some shelving above the washer and dryer as well as take those two appliances outside the house through the laundry room door to work in that area. The work went very smoothly, and every hour or so I would just walk around to get a feel for what was going on. In several areas they made small improvements, including moving a hot water supply under a bathroom sink much closer to the center where it should have been. During the work they also bypassed/removed old piping that had been left outside from the removal of a water softener before. I was told the house water would be on after 5PM, and I think it was actually on by 4. Most of the big mess was cleaned after the work done the first day, with some materials left behind for the patching work to be done the next day. The patching probably could have been done in the same day, but the inspector needed to first verify everything before holes started getting closed up, and he was to come the next morning. Avi took care of the permits and scheduling the inspector. On the next day, a two man crew arrived before 8 again, ready to patch. They staged everything as much as possible so that they could begin work as soon as the inspection was complete. The inspector only found one thing wrong, and it wasn't due to any work Asher Plumbing did - it was a problem with the way the water heater was installed. The pressure release valve and drain pan are supposed to be routed to outside the house. Avi took care of this on Tuesday for no extra charge to make sure we were compliant. All of the holes from the previous day were neatly patched with the drywall they had saved when they first cut the holes. The small amount of stucco that had to be broken through outside the house to avoid breaking through any walls or the ceiling in the kitchen (we have a two story house, so we couldn't just easily go through the attic without some sacrifice) was very neatly patched. Any concerns I found as the job wrapped up were quickly addressed by Avi, including a slightly crooked faucet and an electrical box under the kitchen sink that provided power for the dishwasher, which had been removed from the wall. All areas where work had been done, were shop-vac'ed and swept, and they were on their way before 5. I found two small problems the following day, and emailed Avi about them in the morning. Without hesitation, he said he could come by that afternoon to fix them. One was the hose bib pre-regulator, where part of the fixture was not tightened all the way, so that when I tried to use a hose hooked up to it, it was leaking out of the handle part. The second was that the electrical box I had mentioned before didn't seem to have power. I neglected to check the breakers - that was the problem with the electrical. And Avi easily fixed the hose bib. He was in and out in maybe 10 minutes or less, with no complaints that he had to come out to fix two such small things. Avi has a lifetime guarantee on his work, and he has great customer service, often anticipating what the customer will need before they ask. His crew were very professional and polite. I worked from home to keep an eye on things and figured I'd probably not get much done, but I ended up getting almost a full day's work in because I was able to relax and let the crew do their job knowing that it was being done right. If I had to pick anything at all to criticize, the only thing would be that the cleanup wasn't as thorough as I would do for myself. I did have to go over the bathrooms and sweep them myself to make sure they were really clean, as well as my garage and outside the house where the stucco work was done. There was maybe an errant drop of spackle here and there, but very little considering all the patching that had to be done. I don't think this at all detracts from the overall job, it's more a matter of how exacting my cleanliness standards are. I would not hesitate in the least to recommend Asher Plumbing to anyone else that needs a re-pipe done.
